Courtney and John

I met this dynamic duo at a wedding in December. At that point they weren't engaged yet. Honestly it wasn't until they were on the dance floor that I realized they were even together! Oh but when going back through the wedding pictures and seeing their candid pictures together I couldn't help but notice the pure JOY that radiates from these two. Fast forward a couple of months I was at an event for one of my favorite bridal boutiques (Sweet Elegance Bridal) and I saw Courtney there! She then mentioned they have gotten engaged and were talking about getting married in Cabo. When she mentioned the dates I realized it was going to be the same week we'd be there for vacation.

I'm so excited to be a part of this couple's day in Cabo! In all the years we've vacationed there I've been patiently waiting to have an opportunity to shoot a wedding and I can hardly wait to see what's ahead celebrating with these two and their families and closest friends.

We spent a couple of hours walking the streets of the Grant Park neighborhood. These are my absolute favorite types of shoots.. simply exploring and taking pictures as I see places, light, etc. that inspire me.

A huge thanks for Courtney and John for being themselves and sharing in the fun and games that go along with an engagement session. July can't come fast enough! :)
